If you love peaceful holidays and exquisite natural beauty, welcome to Baviaans Lodge

Nestled amongst wild olive, white stinkwood and yellowwood trees you will find the wilderness retreat of Baviaans Lodge. The lodge is situated in an indigenous tree-filled valley as it enters the Kouga mountains which form part of the Baviaanskloof and has been built from local natural stone in keeping with a traditional country lodge.

Enjoy a glass of wine from our country pub and listen to stories and folk tales of the wilderness area and kloof that makes a visit to the lodge so special. The warm hospitality and friendly staff of Baviaans Lodge will ensure every moment of your stay is unique and memorable. Enjoy superb country style meals freshly prepared and served from the farmhouse kitchen in the romantic setting of the lodge dining room.

Natural stone cottages provide comfortable accommodation, each with a fireplace providing warmth in the winter months. A large fireplace in the main lodge, with yellowwood beamed ceilings and stunning natural stone and wood floors, is the perfect place for guests to relax in the evenings. Baviaans has no electricity or cell phone reception, so enjoy quiet evenings by candlelight and paraffin lamps. The main lodge runs on a generator in the evenings and DStv is available in the pub for sports fans. We also offer a stunning campsite, for the outdoor experience enthusiast. This is more suited for the summer months due to the cold winters we experience in the Kouga mountains.

Activities include walks and hikes, river rafting, 4x4 trail adventures, nature experiences, bass fishing, outdoor boma and camping, game trail experiences, bushmen art trails, and cultural experiences.

We enjoyed our night away at Baviaans Kloof. Our cottage was clean and comfortable with a great view of the surroundings. The roads there were challenging yet manageable in a normal sedan vehicle. Food was awesome and plentiful, Rob treated us extremely well. We felt safe and comfortable. Cant imagine its easy to run an establishment like this without the conveniences that the rest of us are used to so well done Rob, it was a memorable stay.

We really enjoyed Baviaans Lodge. We would definitely go back again. Rob, the host, is an excellent cook and knows the region extremely well. We like his ethos towards the environment.

Wonderful surroundings but the lodge is not up to standard. We were placed 1 km from the main lodge in a converted farm cottage. We had to pass a scrap yard and ruins of buildings. There was no kettle for coffee in our place and the rooms had no locks or keys. On New Year's eve we had a burglary. It spoilt our trip and we will never return or recommend this place.

We enjoyed our stay at Baviaans Lodge very much. Rob was the perfect host.

Lorien Gamaroff, South Africa

Rob Le Roux, the owner, looked after us so well, as I have special needs. The Lodge is charming and rustic, and to be served, cooked for, and generally cared for by the owner himself was very special. Baviaans Lodge is for getting out of the rat-race, slowing down a few gears, and enjoying nature away from screens, phones and noise. Being a good walker is an advantage, with lots to explore of the unspoilt wilderness.
